Warframe Weapon Tier List (January 2022)

Warframe Weapon Tier List

If you’re looking for a Warframe Weapon Tier List you’ve come to the right place.

Last Updated: January 2022

Warframe is a free-to-play online shooter that was released way back in 2013. Despite its old age, the title still has active players, amassing nearly 50 million in 2019. This continued popularity is largely due to the game’s multiple expansions. In fact, just last March, Warframe received yet another major addition to its game world: the Corpus Promixa expansion.

With all these new additions to the game, it’s worth revisiting to check for new gear and weapons. And when it comes to weapons, Warframe has a lot. Luckily, our Warframe Weapon Tier List is here to save the day. For this list, we’ll be ranking all the weapons that exist in the game, according to their usefulness and power. Yes, that’s right. All of the weapons! Primary, Secondary, and Melee.

Now, let’s get to our Warframe Weapon Tier List!
